About us

IT BEGAN WITH JUST ONE PRODUCT  

Coral Safe all began with a single dark tanning oil formula. Inspired by a hydrating and nourishing recipe made and sold by the locals in Acapulco, Mexico, the original dark tanning oil was later reformulated by Southwest Florida local, Avonelle Edwards. She discovered the beloved tanning oil while vacationing in Acapulco in 1976, and returned home with some of the oil to study, analyze and eventually remake her own version. She made and sold her addicting and natural dark tanning oil, and consumers adored it for its chemical-free, all-natural and effective formula — one that delivered a dark, luxurious tan without harmful and irritating chemicals. 

CORAL SAFE HAS YOU COVERED

Since Coral Safe's start with its single tanning oil, it's grown to include natural mineral sunscreens, aloe vera gel, lip balms and more. Our name, Coral Safe, is rather self-explanatory. Because our sunscreens are mineral and biodegradable, they pose no threat to the oceans' coral reefs, which are in danger due to harmful chemicals in traditional, chemical sunscreens like oxybenzone and octinoxate. 

SAFE FOR YOU, SAFE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

We care about the environment as much as we care about what our customers put on their skin. We proudly supply customers and retailers with natural, safe, mineral sunscreens and sun care products they can fully trust. All of our products are safe for skin and safe for delicate ecosystems like coral reefs. They're ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving, especially in locations that only allow the use of mineral sunscreen.
